    Default Personal web sharing won't Start

    In Sharing, the Start button remains grayed out (never turning to Stop).

    In Terminal:

    sudo /usr/sbin/apachectl start
    sudo apachectl configtest

    answer both:

    bad group name www

    NetInfo show a user named www but no group www.

    What can I try ?

    add it to /etc/group

    It's gid 70 on my system.

    Or modify the /etc/http/http.conf to use another "Group"

    If all this is greek to you, you should buy a book

    Try figuring out why you don't have a group "www", why it might have
    disappeared, and whether your Mac is broken. The www group is created
    when Mac OS X is installed, so it should be present. If you removed it,
    then re-create it. If you didn't remove it, but it's not there, then
    something is amiss with your Mac, and you need to find out what caused
    the problem.

    How to re-create www group ?

    Through the System Preferences Account, NetInfo Manager or with chgrp ?
    In the last case what option and parameter must be used ?

    Thank you.

    NetInfo Manager. But unless you find out *why* the group isn't there, I
    think you're ignoring the real problem.
